I'm not sure if you're dedicated to using an arduino,
but a cheaper (albeit much simpler and smaller chip
without as friendly a programming environment)
alternative would be the texas instrument launchpad=2E
=C2=A0The development board, usb programmer, and 2 chips
cost under $10=2E


Alternately if you need to use arduino software, you
could just get the atmega chip and supporting
hardware (crystal, caps, voltage regulator & battery
terminal if powering off batteries) and build your
own board with a protoboard from radio shack or
similar=2E =C2=A0You'll also need to get a programmer for
the AVR chips which will initially cost more than the
cost of an arduino but after a few boards will save
you lots of money compared to buying an arduino for
every project=2E

Hello all

 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 I will not make it to the meeting tonight=

due to my skate patrol

duties=2E =C2=A0 However I do have a query=2E =C2=A0 Does the

Modlab have any special deals

on Arduino hardware? e=2Eg=2E

 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 http://www=2Esolarbotics=2E=

Would anyone be interested in collaboratively buying

something like this? =C2=A0I

do not need a primer on electronics - if you do,

maybe I can help=2E =C2=A0I just

need to get my hands and some time on this kind of

hardware at relatively low cost=2E
